Walton High School Foundation’s 2021-22 Commit to the “W” Campaign is our drive to raise $200,000 to support the Walton Community. This year’s campaign is kicking off now. You should receive the Walton High School Foundation 2022 Patron Drive brochure in the mail the week of February 28, 2022. The Campaign will last from February 28th through the end of the Auction on April 23, 2022.
Contributing to the Commit to the “W” campaign will benefit your student because funds raised will be used to:
- Hire additional teachers, based on scheduling needs, to reduce class size and to offer in demand electives
- Hire a full-time counselor to reduce the workload of the current student case manager counselors
- Create a healthier environment by providing hand sanitizer refills for the school
- Procure more outdoor furniture to expand the dining hall seating options
- Improve the landscaping
- Hire an additional custodian, is also on our wish list
- Fulfill Walton High School needs as they arise
Throughout the school year, those families who donate $250 or more receive a Foundation magnet to show your Walton spirit on your car.
Those families who donate $250 or more before the end of our campaign on April 23rd will receive a blue ribbon on their mailbox as an extra thank you. Help us paint the town blue!
Those families who donate $5,000 or more will have the privilege of naming a classroom.
Once we all get back to normal, you can look forward to other regular donor perks.
How do I make a donation?
Giving is easy and can be done online! Simply click the Donate button below or the Donate menu above.
You may also send a check made out to “WHS Foundation” to the school.
The WHS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization (EIN #58-1985878) making any donation given tax-deductible as allowed by law. Also, please ask your employer about matching gifts as this can double or triple your contribution!
Another way to support the Walton Community is to participate in the Walton Foundation Auction that will be happening April 21-23, 2022.
Our Teachers Say It Best:
“The ability to hire a few more half-time teachers is tremendously helpful. Creating more classes for the same number of students in our student body allows for smaller class sizes. With smaller class sizes, teachers can give more written assignments and provide more meaningful feedback, teachers can assign more authentic products for students to produce with enough time to grade them, and group work can be done more easily and more manageably. We cannot thank the Foundation enough for their support in this endeavor; it makes a HUGE difference!”
